Re: Budgies started to hate me and u cant tame them anymore!

This article has lots of great Info

Also as stated by other members, if you didn't get a parakeet from a breeder who socialized them as babies it much harder. But it can be done, some have success.
My budgie Cloudy will come and eat scrambled eggs and other stuff from my hand, come to my face and make cute noises. But my other budgie will not come near me at all.
You have success and then a set back. Something spooked them about hands. Do you ha e to start over. Never chase them with your hands, you want them moving toward you.
I hope you can enjoy these lively and lovely parrots even if hands on friendship remains off the table. They still enjoy time out if the cage, play, good fresh veggies.
May your joy be as deep as the ocean, and your sorrows as light as the foam.
